Cunningham Pathology

Interface to MediSYS EHR / ePrescribe

February 6, 2009, Birmingham, AL….. In keeping with the growing focus to reduce healthcare costs and improve patient care, MediSYS announced today the release of a real-time lab interface with Cunningham Pathology, an Alabama-based company who provides customized pathology laboratory services.  Lab results from Cunningham Pathology are now available electronically within MediSYS Electronic Health Records and MediSYS ePrescribe applications.  Returned electronically to the physician’s inbox within these MediSYS applications, lab results from Cunningham Pathology include special indications for abnormal findings. In addition, the lab results are automatically documented and stored in the patient’s record, allowing the physician anywhere web access for current and future patient care.  Practice activities surrounding the electronic lab results, such as provider review, are also electronically documented in the patient’s record.

The greater efficiencies within the practice and the lab as a by product of this electronic interface is another example of MediSYS’ commitment to connect healthcare information systems to aide physicians in controlling costs and enhancing patient service.  In addition, to the newly released Cunningham Pathology interface, MediSYS EHR and MediSYS ePrescribe offers real-time external lab interfaces with LabCorp, Quest, Southern Diagnostics Laboratories, Doctors Laboratories, Skin Path, and Cytopath.
